My name is Florence Alma Parker. I am the daughter of Francis Eugene Wood who married my mother Leonora Hannah Blasé on June 11, 1949 in Madison, WI. I was born on August 12, 1951 as Florence Alma Wood in Fitchburg, WI, at my grandmothers’ (Alma Blasé) home. My father and mother were divorced, and my mother later married Franklin Helbig of Elkton, IL. My brother, Robert Eugene and I were adopted by Franklin M. Helbig of Elkton, IL. Franklin’s first wife Helen died. They had two sons, Gerald Franklin Helbig and Robert Joseph Delio Helbig. My brother is now deceased from Agent Orange from the Vietnam war. I finally met my birth father, Francis, when I was 47 years old. I was married to Tommy Patrick Parker on June 3, 1970. We have two sons, Lance Patrick Parker, born on January 9, 1971, and Heath Allan Parker, born on December 1, 1973. Lance was married to Jeanetta Darlene Venus in 1990, and they had three sons. Justin Patrick Parker, born on June 3, 1991, Jordan Ray Parker, born on January 3, 1996, and Elisha Jacob Parker, born on January 5, 2007. Heath was married to Bobbie Dawn ? Parker and had one son, Allan James Parker. They divorced, and Heath married Kylie Wilson. Kylie had a son from a previous marriage, Brenden Wilson, and together, they had Braxton Allan Wayne Parker. On one of my dad’s visits, he showed us a picture of grandpa where he was standing outside. Tom and I now reside outside of Steeleville, IL, and are the pastors of the Family Worship Center Assembly of God church in Chester, IL, as well as Tom is a Supervisor over the local truck drivers for the Gilster- Mary Lee Corp. in Steeleville, IL.
